Flying Cities Aren't A Fiction

**
 At the end of 1997, the Chilean Air Force Command announced
creation of a Commission for studies of anomalous atmospheric
phenomena; the Commission was to be attached to the Civil
Aviation central board. Director of the Civil Aviation College
colonel Enzo Dinosera was appointed head of the Commission.

Chile largest daily La Tercera revealed a tiny secret: the
Commission was created on the initiative of the Ex-Commander of
the Chilean Air Force Ramon Vega, who is currently a senator.
The senator himself saw UFOs twice and believes that UFO
actually exist. That is why he isn't going to waste time to
prove this fact.

In 1988, the crew of a spy plane saw "the lights of a city"
downward, they took the lights for the city of Antofagasta, the
largest port in the north of Chile. But suddenly the "city" took
off and flew! The plane crew was scared to death and immediately
made their way to the aerodrome.

Another flying city was seen in April 1996 in the southern part
of Chile. Aircraft mechanic Joaquin Himenes from the airport of
Los- Cerrilos in Santiago saw a huge UFO at the beginning of
October 1996. The mechanic told: "The UFO came at the speed of
about 50 miles per hour. The object was surrounded with a green
phosphoric glow; it approached the landing strip and hovered in
the air right before a cabin of air traffic controllers. Then it
lost height, and a red light was going through its bottom, but
it didn't touch the ground. Finally, the object soared upwards
and flew away northward. The whole event lasted for 15 minutes."

Himenes saw UFO even before that instance. He was member of the
crew of a plane following from Punta-Arenas to Puerto-Williams
on December 14, 1992. He says: "We saw an orange glowing ball of
about two meters in diameter, the ball followed us. The pilot
contacted the air traffic controllers and asked if they saw
anything beside the plane. The controllers answered that the
radar registered some object, but according to the flight
schedule no planes should be in the area. The orange ball
followed us right up to Puerto-Williams, and then it flew away
to the Atlantic coast."

Gustave Rodrigues, who had been working an air traffic
controller for 27 years, was appointed secretary of the newly
created Commission. Rodrigues told: "I have a taped conversation
between a pilot and an air traffic controller in the airport of
Ariki. The pilot said that when an UFO approached the plane,
there were some troubles with the communication system. When the
tape is played, it seems that the pilot had said a complete long
phrase, but only very beginning and its end were recorded."

The stories about so-called "flying houses" are the most strange
ones among the recently registered UFO cases in Chile. The first
occurred on April 16, 1990 when an UFO overturned a house.

Investigator Raul Hayardo says that he interrogated the
witnesses and took pictures of the incident site. "A red
semicircular object with white flashing lights flew directly
above one of the buildings at a very low height of about ten
meters." The Balboas were quietly sleeping in the house. The UFO
flew above the left side of the building and lifted it a little.
Then the house fell of one side, and the front door turned
blocked at that. The Balboas family had to break off some planks
to get out of the house. The saw the strange object go up and
hit against transmission facilities. A bright flash followed.
Finally, the UFO vertically soared up and disappeared in the sky
within several seconds.

Mister Balboa said: "The thing resembled a flaming ball. While I
was staring at it, our home collapsed." When the site was
examined later, the people saw that some plants on the
plantation were dried, some slightly or completely burnt.
